The Crafty +|Mighty are considered legendary dry herb vaporizers, setting the bar for peak performance, functional design, and long-term durability.

Both devices employ a hybrid conduction/convection oven that delivers consistent vapor quality at each use. Both vapes represent vaping at it’s best.
The SLX was already the best grinder around, and the V2.5 (Released early 2020) makes it even better. It retains all the positives of the original while improving the build quality.

So, regardless of which kind of vaporizer you have, the SLX will be the perfect companion for it.

It also features a ceramic bowl, which means this device is better suited for users who prioritize flavor over vapor density.
The Yocan UNI line is a great example of good design progression at a very good price. But since there really is not much of a difference between all three devices, it all comes down to what you want out of a vaporizer.

The C-Box Pro is button-activated that has four temp settings, while the C-Box Mini is draw-activated that has a single voltage setting (3.7V). Choosing between the two is a matter of preference.
